[ applause ] >> and joining me now from the white house, nbc news correspondent viqueira. vic, will the gop continue its pile-on of the ambassador? will it have the opposite effect of hardening the president and daring him essentially to select her for secretary of state perhaps? >> well, you know, it's hard to say exactly what is going through the president's mind at this point. a lot of people think that he is really under the gun to make an appointment, but hillary clinton is still the secretary of state. he may have some time yet. perhaps even as much as a
i currently live at 1824 jackson street. i have lived in san francisco for over 30 years. up until two years ago i lived in presidio heights where i enjoys a nice home with my daughters and a view of the golden gate. when i decided to move to pacific heights in this particular building on jackson, one of the things that was really appealing as it is for all of these neighbors plus others who didn't have time to come because of the short notice was the fact we had views. some great, not all of them, but we had partial views of the water. we paid for those views. all of us paid for those views, okay? the proposed addition, not just the floor, because if you look at the plan, it's not just an additional flash, floor, but the solar panels. you are almost looking at adding two floors, not one. they block the water view and i know right to view not necessarily, but what about right to value? we pay taxes and we pay taxes on property and property is high because you have a view. well, with this thing we will no longer have any views. and the question also is addition to solar panels unde

by aye. >> motion carries. public comments? dr. jackson. dr. jackson. >> thank you very much, dr. jackson, hunter's point. i wasn't going to come today but it became an emergency. we have a large problem in the southeast sector of san francisco, especially with our children. we have a turf, where children that live in a full-block area cannot leave out to get to school. there was a group financing the young men and women to the college, and they were doing well. but the funding stopped last friday. i am concerned about the young people getting to school. i know there are programs and i talked to one this morning with the city hall, the young people wears colored jackets and things but only 12 staff. my concern is a community benefit fund for hunter's point and that's funding for all over the city. but my concern is when funds are given out to so-called cbo's or the same people, it do not reach in my community where it need to be reached. i requested that i would like to see when funds are distributed to so-called groups that are doing something in my community. including the health depart
to present my friend, the reverend dr. jackson who i have known as a friend for 51 years. we have traveled around the world in brazil and africa. we were there when mr. mandala was release friday prison. we have gone. >> >> congress. we have gone before great enemies even to plead for justice for all peoples but i present to you a preacher of the gospel. a faith leader who knows that there is no lasting peace at all unless you pay the price for peace by working the things that make the peace in a community. jesse jackson has been the needle. he has been the thread through the agency of rainbow push coalition pulling together all of these broken fabrics of society in order that we might hope for, look for, and look for eternalally a better society in which we will be no more beset with bigotry and classicism and racism and all of the ism's that tear the very fabric of society. he has paid the price for freedom. he has paid the price for peace. he has paid the price for social betterment. i present to you a better that knows how to pay the price for a beautiful quilt, peace in san
bit now and we have to get deeper and that's why i am so pleased to join reverend jackson yet again in this city. we have been a city of hope for so many other cities throughout the country, but we also struggle ourselves. we have the same problems, and we've got to i think produce models that potentially have answers for everybody else, so i will continue talking about this. it is part of who i am. it's the part of me that keeps me focused on what i have to do in this city, and just because we win a world series that we have technology companies coming in that will not allow me to rest. that is not something i say makes me so happy. i am happy if every community in the city experiences the hope that others have in the city and you can't do that if you have a lot of violence so thank you very much for being here today and i invite you to continue dialoguing with us and consider this yet another beginning of this effort that we will continue on and on. thank you.

character. tonight's guest director peter jackson. (cheers and applause) who has requested that tonight's interview be broken into three parts and aired every december until 2014. you know, folks, it's just been a great week. and spending time with the creators of the hobbit for the past four days has changed me in ways i never expected. i mean it's hard to put my finger on it. (laughter) i got to tell you, it is such high maintenance. i can never find the parts. and frankly my mani-pedi girl is on a suicide watch. but of course tonight a big story comes from my home state of south carolina. >> big breaking news in this town, senator jim demint, a tea party favorite and conservative icon is surprisingly resigning his seat he had tend of the-- end of the year. >> stephen: that's right, south carolina jim demint is de-quitting. now the decision on who will replace demint falls to south carolina governor and friend of the show nikki haley. but who will she pick. let's see, you want somebody young. somebody conserve fiv, somebody from south carolina. maybe somebody who had a super pac. wait

, the russian-moldova, jackson-vanik repeal and sergei magnitsky rule of law accountability act of 2012. because of scheduling concerns, i am speaking on this bill as in morning business and that allow time for other members to speak. at this point, on behalf of the senator from maryland, mr. cardin, i ask unanimous consent that floor privileges be granted to kyl parker, a staff member on the commission on security and cooperation in europe, also known as the helsinki commission, which i cochair -- which senator cardin cochairs, during senate consideration of h.r. 6156. the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mr. wicker: thank you, mr. president. and, again, i come to the floor today to support this bill. it has is very important two-fold purpose. it promotes normal trade relations with russia, and at the same time the legislation insists that the russian government adhere to the rule of law. it does so by putting consequences in place for those in russia who abusive human rights, basic human rights. granting pntr to russia is a big win for americans. if congress does not act, amer
is before us. it takes a long overdue action by ending the application of jackson-vanik sanctions to russia. jackson-vanik is no longer relevant to russia because russia no longer restricts the free emigration of its people. the soviet union began to relax its restrictions on jewish emigration in 1987 during gorbachev's perestroika. then following the collapse of the soviet union in 1991, millions of soviet jews were permitted to leave. since then, russia has allowed free emigration. i have felt for a long time that we should have graduated russia from jackson-vanik when jackson-vanik's noble purpose was achieved rather than waiting years, often in the effort to make other points relative to russia on other issues. first some history. in 2007, i met with rabbi lazar, chief rabbi of russia regarding jackson-vanik. he urged passage of legislation ending the application of jackson-vanik to russia. also in 2007, i received a letter from the chairman of the federation of jewish communities which represents presidents and rabbis of over 200 jewish communities in russia, a letter which urged me to
. it goes on. it goes on. it goes on. why, david jackson, haven't people started screaming from the streets and screaming from the rooftops about what this mean, this is a manufactured crisis. >> well, they haven't felt it in their paycheck and they will after january 1. the government will be taking more out of their paychecks and when the tax time will roll by in april, they'll feel it and businesses will feel it. once people will see they're losing money on this deal you'll see more public outrage about it. >> david naka, mura, calling for an up or down vote if the senate can't come up with it. he's talking about 250,000, at one point 400,000. is it realistic to think that the president can win this thing on an up or down vote? >> if they actually go to an up and down vote there will be a lot of pressure on those who were against a temporary fix with this to make their case known and actually go on the record. that's why the question is would the republican senators who would oppose this thing at the $250,000 level, they would use some of the mechanisms they have like the fill buster and
believe the attack was gang-related. >>> reverend jesse jackson was in san francisco, to celebrate peace sunday. jackson joined other religious leaders and mayor, to highlight the city's violence prevention initiative. to keep them from the cycle of crime and violence. >> and the best -- fight, jobs, job training, hope and the future. >> we're grateful. >> and jackson also expressed his support for revival on the ban of assault weapon. >> former south african president, nelson mandela is hospitalized. statement revealed that the apartheid hero was admitted to the opt for tests and his condition was comfortable. delegations visited the hospital. he spent 27 years had prison fighting racist white rule. he became south africa's south president in 1994. >>> hugo chavez is back in cuba for more cancer treatment. chafes, reelected in october, refacing a "new battle with the disease." doctors say he will undergo surgery after previous operations, chemo therapy and radiation treatment. >>> fresh crowd in san francisco, synonymous for years. not so much this past week. cbs 5 reports, why there's
can up front to figure out what the appetite is for the rate hit. >> definitely. >> dr. jackson. >> thank you. dr. jackson. i have received calls and some people go on the internet. i don't do that, because i don't know how. and there was a question concerning the davis & associates. especially with public education community engagement and the advertising in the different areas. and because in my community and i always talk about bayview hunter's point. because i don't talk about nobody else's area. in my area in district 10, we have mostly latinos, asians and samoians, and those who don't read english. everyone knows i am the mayor of hunter's point and they ask me the question. and who will they hire to knock to doors? because a lot of people will not open their doors to strangers. they know the people in the neighborhood. and i want you to think about this clearly. we have people that have worked jointly in the community over the last 30 years. because of our influx with the redevelopment agency. so the thing of it is, i want to let you know that people are watching. and a l
jackson street. i submitted an extensive letter that is part of your package. i do support everything that has been said by my neighbors and i want to touch on a couple of points that have been raised today. one the lawyer mentioned the fact -- he describes pacific avenue there as being a bunch of tall buildings. well, he seemed to conveniently forget that the building next door to this building, 1856 pacific, is an historic, old, beautifully restored home and the result of this elevation is the roof -- the extension, the penthouse will exceed considerably the roof ridgeline of this victorian mansion. so that is affecting an old, beautiful, old building at the 50' height and has been there since before the turn-of-the-century. second point, you have got to remember here that the current building has 11 rent-stabilized apartments. this one will take the top rent-stabilized apartment as i understand it, and turn it into a 42-4300-square-foot duplex penthouse that will still be ten rate-stabilized units below this pent house, but at live in four instances of those rent-stabilized un
